#ObamainPHL #ObamainPH Fernando Amorsolo’s Study of Filipino-American Symbols. Graphite. From the book Amorsolo Drawings by Rod Paras-Perez. Benpres Publishing. 

On View: COMPLICATED: Dissecting the Philippines and its colonial past. The exhibition situates the post-colonial critiques presented by the oeuvre of guest visual artists, Leslie de Chavez and Mike Adrao, along with dancer and choreographer Ea Torrado, the many upheavals of Philippine history represented in the archival, library, and art collections of the Lopez Memorial Museum and Library. Focusing on the complicated relationship of the Philippines with its colonial pasts, the exhibit will problematize the notion that identity is both a product of our post-colonial circumstance and the discourse of nationhood.
